Easter 2012

I know it's December, but I was going through some old things and thought I'd post the Easter Bunny's coloring page from 2012.  Enjoy!

Peanut-Butter Jar Banks

My hubby and I recently put these together for our kids; so far we all love them!

I made the labels on the computer and backed them with scrapbook paper. They're attached to the jars with a little glue and clear contact paper (for protection of the label as well as attachment to the jar). Same with the lid covers--some scrapbook paper with a slit, covered with contact paper slightly larger than the circles. Hubby cut the slits in the actual lids, cut and stained the wood, and screwed the jars to the wood.

Pretty simple, used all on-hand supplies, fun, and quite functional!

More Conference!

I realize that this is last-minute for the current General Conference, but it may help a few of you. If not, it can be used in the future! I've been putting together some more pages for my kiddos and wanted to share.

*Disclaimer: I've been having some trouble when converting my files to PDF format. Some of my images become very poor quality, or the PDF document adds random lines to images, etc. I apologize for this and hope that you're still able to enjoy the pages for what they're worth! :) (And if anyone knows of a free PDF creator that would produce a higher-quality product, please let me know!)

Conference Helps

I've put together a few random activity packets/pages for my kids for LDS Stake and General Conferences. I'm also so grateful for others whose packets and activity pages I've used! I thought that, since I'm always gathering others' packet/activity ideas, I'd put up some of what I've come up with in hopes that it will help someone else out there. :) Hope someone finds something useful in here!

Easter Coloring Page 2010

Each year the Easter Bunny leaves a coloring page in my kids' Easter baskets to help them remember the real meaning of the day. Here is this year's page:

For past years' pages, see HERE and HERE.

Homemade Stickers - Lick 'n' Stick

Remember lick 'n' stick stickers? I think they're less common these days! Here's a fun way to make some tasty ones of your own. You can use pictures from magazines, computer printouts, your kids' own creative! To make them stick, mix the following:

1 tsp. gelatin (any flavor)
2 tsp. boiling water

Stir until gelatin dissolves and let cool for just a minute or so. While still warm, paint mixture onto the back of your "stickers" - use a paintbrush, a cotton swab, your fingers...whatever!

If you're doing a large sheet, it's easier to just coat the whole sheet and then cut apart afterward...

Let dry. Cut apart, if still needed. Lick, and then stick!
